Brave new world

The third season of The Walking Dead was formally announced at E3 earlier this year, but we've heard nothing of the game since then. However, during Telltale's panel at PAX West earlier today, the developer revealed that the third season will be titled "A New Frontier", and shared some details on what to expect in it.

You'll take control of two characters throughout the season, the returning Clementine and a newcomer named Javier. Kevin Boyle, executive producer, said: "Years later, meeting her for the first time, Javier will begin to unravel the mystery of who Clementine has become, as her story intersects with his -- both of them still driven by the things they value most long after society's collapse."

This third season also operates as both a sequel to the previous titles and a new beginning for a different set of characters four years after the events of Season One. Kevin Bruner, CEO of Telltale Games, said: "As a harrowing and horrific drama, 'A New Frontier' will explore beyond what it means to survive in a world ravaged by the undead, and will see our characters confronting the new rules of order and justice in a land being brutally reclaimed and rediscovered by what's left of humanity itself."

The first episode of A New Frontier is scheduled to release in November, with five episodes planned.
